Salad Delight has tropical fruit, fluffy marshmallows, and whipped cream and toasted coconut. It makes this vintage dessert perfect for the holidays, cookouts or anytime.
This Mitten Movie Night I’m taking it to the tropics so salad delight it is! Don’t let the name fool you this ‘salad’ is a tropical fruit salad that is a sweet treat. Fruits, marshmallows and whipped cream topped with toasted coconut. This vintage recipe stands the test of time and perfect for holidays, picnics or any night of the week. I may not be able to escape to a warmer climate right now but I can make this salad delight, sit under a bright light with sunglasses and sip on a mango sour beer. Sounds good, huh?
What TV show pairs well with fruit salad?
Recommended watching: We are catching up on a new to us show, Atlanta. If you are a fan of Donald Glover either the show he started in Community or his music you will see him at his finest in this drama. A little thing you may not know about him thought (and no he is NOT related to Danny Glover) he was actually discovered by Tina Fey and wrote for my favorite show ever, 30 Rock.
What beer pairs well with Salad Delight?
The beer: In The Flesh from Two Brothers Artisan Brewing.
With this, I am serving it as a side with some slider sandwiches. A perfect beer to pair this with is In The Flesh from Two Brothers Artisan Brewing. I’m a really big fan of sour beers and this one made with mango is on the top of my favorites list. The sourness does cut the sweetness of the salad. Delicious!
Now on to this salad delight that’s not a salad at all.
How to make Salad Delight:
While I do usually like to have pictures of each step there simply was no reason for it. All you have to do is set the whipped cream and frozen fruit on the counter and let thaw. You could also do this overnight in the refrigerator. Once the items have thawed make sure to drain the frozen fruit as it may have water in the bottom.
Next, open the can of crushed pineapple and drain that too. You don’t want it making your salad runny.
In a medium sized bowl add the fruit, pineapple, whipped cream, chopped banana, and marshmallows. Mix to combine all the ingredients.
In a small pan on the stove over medium heat melt 1/2 tsp of butter. Add the coconut and toast for 2-3 minutes. Take off the stove and let cool.
Sprinkle on top of the salad.
And here you are…..
